I LOVE these shoes. I had a pair just like them and wore them out. I just got these and they are as comfortable as my old ones. They can be worn anywhere, with almost anything. They run a little short and are a bit narrow, so just adjust as needed. A great shoe!

Have worn Athena for years. One of their t-strap sandals I wore for 3 weeks straight while walking and working daily to an Orphanage in Ethiopia. Comfortable! Like slippers! I was in my 50's! and can't live w/o them! In fact the strap just broke on a pair I had purchased in 2008! Quality sandal!

Love these shoes. Hope the metallic-coloring on the straps holds out because they are hot and super comfortable!

I'm a size 8, medium wide, ordered a size 9 as was suggested but couldn't begin to get it on my foot. My friend who is a size 7 1/2 put it on and it fit perfectly. I wouldn't recommend a shoe company that can't get the size anywhere near right on any of their products.

Bought these wonderful sandals to go with my "Mother of the Bride"outfit. They were comfortable right out of the box and I received many compliments that evening. Also look great with jeans and a fun top! Just a great sandal all around!

I generally love the AA brand and have been lucky with the fit of their size 5. The shoe is very cute but the back rise (from the heel bed to the ankle strap) is too long so that my foot flops around in the shoe when I try to walk. It maybe because my foot is a size 5, and the rise might work fine for larger sizes, but for me it didn't work at all. The heel height and everything else is great.

Loved them right out of the box. They make a little noise form the flower but unless you are very sensitive to such you will not notice it. Doesn't bother me a bit.

I am very disappointed with these shoes. I am a big fan of Athena Alexander shoes and own many pairs that have been great. These shoes, however, broke after wearing them only a handful of times. The top part of the right shoe lifted completely off the bottom of the shoe and now are unwearable. Too bad, because it was a cute style. I also notice the braided leather would rub against my feet, which caused blisters.

This is about the most comfortable shoes I ever bought. They're beautiful and I'm really picky. These shoes are very classy for a slide and they go with a lot. I absolutely love these shoes. Wish they also came in plain silver. I would buy them in a second!

Love these shoes! Bought them for a wedding which was the first time I wore them. They were comfortable all evening. My only concern is by the end of the evening my toes were sticking over the end. I hope they don't continue to stretch.

Comfortable shoe but the straps create blisters on top of my foot. I've tried everything. I can't change the rubbing and irritation. Quality control is missing on this shoe.

These are darling, pretty shoes, and I so wanted to make them work! I wore them around my living room and just couldn't walk in them. The soles are incredibly slippery and the strap over the top of the foot fit wide and loose. I couldn't keep them on my feet and ideas sliding everywhere. When I sat down and looked at my feet, I was in love! But they just won't work for me. Back they go, sadly.

Pretty shoes - versatile. Can dress up or dress down. My only complaint is that the strap between the toes is really stiff. I had to put moleskin between my toes before wearing for any length of time. It's starting to soften up now and so it's no longer a problem.

I wear an 8.5, but ordered a 9. The 9 is just right which makes me think these shoes run a little small. The leather is very soft! The bands do feel a little tight, but I'm sure they will stretch some. Overall, very comfortable.

I love my shoes but they broke! I contacted Zappos and they replaced them right away. Awesome customer service!

I have been wearing a size 10 for years and when this size 10 arrived it was much smaller than any other size 10 I have ever bought. My daughter who wears a size 8 slipped right into it and it fit perfectly. I'd have to say they are 2 sizes smaller than the average shoe. Unfortunately, I'm returning them. I was very excited about this purchase as I've been looking for a pewter sandal for a few weeks and thought I'd found the perfect one!

I purchased this shoe in black and it's awesome! It's super comfortable and super light which makes it extremely comfortable to walk in. Also, the sole provides a bounce in your step which I like. The style look sexy too. I hate buying shoes that make me look like a grandma. It goes really great with bootleg and straightleg jeans. This is a great shoe and its a great price. I didn't know how great this brand is. What are you waiting for? Get it!

Beautiful shoe. Very comfortable. Did not squeak as some other reviews stated. I wish I had more in different colors.

Got in silver and in black in size 8. Black fits true to my size or a bit small, so they were perfect. The silver was at least a half size too big in strap and length. They seem to be made by different factory, since they have a slightly different wedge design and the sizing is so far off. Will send silver back and maybe try smaller size. Maybe more stars later, once I've worn them to a party.

These are super cute, but they are not at all true to size. I am a 12. I sometimes have issues with width but never length. My heel was more than ½" overhanging! The width was fine.

I wanted a pair of shoes that were a high heel, but with a platform so they would be comfortable and almost feel like I was wearing flats, and that were nice enough to go out in, but still on the casual side. These are perfect! I've worn them to bbq's and out to dinner. I can walk a fair amount in them and they don't hurt the way most high heel shoes do. The cork sole and the light cushioning make them so comfortable I bought them in black and brown. Definitely a great shoe to own. They do seem to run a bit narrow though.
